Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Who here has seen GALACTIC? Should I go see them?

Galactic is playing in Ft. Lauderdale tomorrow night.

There playing in a club that I really don't like too much, and I'm not familiar with their music. Plus there's a very good local band playing the same night, so I'm conflicted. I'm sure some of you are familiar with them--recommended?

I'm not really into a many of the bands that are currently popular in the jam-band scene, and generally-speaking am not into the trend of blending DJ's & electronic music in with a live band sound. Is that a big part of what they do?

Haven't seen them in over 5 years not by choice they just don't come around my parts. They were one of my favorite bands to see live, funky as hell with a lot of soul jazz boogaloo tunes. There last few albums have been real hip hop oriented. This tour has Corey Glover from Living Color as a guest vocalist so that should be toned down. I would go only $20 and Stanton moore is a monster on the drums. Here is something I found on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vs3wHqhWQPE

They played FloydFest last year and it was a smokin' set. If they came to Va Beach, I'd go see them again.

i saw them about 5 years ago and they were very good. nothing mind blowing, just nice funk/jazzy-workout type music.

i know their sound has changed direction quite a bit since then; i heard one of their more recent releases and was rather disappointed with it. so i can't say for sure how good it will be. could be a gamble...

They are loaded with talent, so if you like their style of funky, jazzy stuff, then go see them, yes. Why not just check out their stuff on youtube or whatever and decide for yourself?
